What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC®?

JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is injectable gel made of hyaluronic acid; however, this HA is cross-linked in a unique way using patented Vycross technology that gives this filler to the exceptional ability to lift and re-volumize the midface.  This extensive cross-linking and HA particle size blend uniquely provides Voluma® with the longevity of up to 2 years! Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our skin and is responsible for keeping it hydrated and soft.  As we age, this production slows, contributing to age related wrinkles, sagging and laxity. When injected into the cheeks by an experienced medical professional at Skinjectables® Anti-aging Bar, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC® creates a more youthful-looking profile by restoring the natural contour of the cheeks. Our injectors have been trained exclusively by Allergan to perform your treatment with Voluma XC® in a conservative, never over-done, way such that you always look refreshed and natural.

What should I expect during my Juvederm Voluma XC treatment?

JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC procedure is similar to other dermal filler treatments in that injections are used to restore mid face volume where loss has occurred.  After consulting with one of our medical professionals at Skinjectables® and deciding that Voluma XC is right for you, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the cleansed area of treatment.  JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC® comes pre-formulated with lidocaine, an anesthetic, so patient discomfort is minimal. The product is then injected into the cheeks through a series injections of using a small needle, restoring volume and contour immediately.  Most treatments require less than 45 minutes to complete with very minimal side effects and virtually no downtime.   Make-up and your normal skincare routine can be utilized almost immediately as long as significant manipulation to the area is avoided.

Possible Side Juvederm Voluma XC Effects

The side effects of JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC are typically mild and short-lived and are similar to those of other injectable dermal fillers. After your treatment, you will experience mild to moderate swelling, mild tenderness, possible bruising, and potentially redness and itching near the injection site. These effects typically diminish within a few days to a few weeks. Patients should avoid exercise and excessive sun exposure for the first 24 hours after treatment. Avoidance of anti-inflammatories, vitamin E or fish oil and drinking alcohol for several days prior to your treatment can minimize some of these side effects. Conversely, taking Arnica Montana or eating fresh pineapple can reduce the risk of experiencing some of these side effects.
